Book Summary:
After 450 years of living, Nastasya Crowe should have more of a handle on this whole immortal thing....

After a deadly confrontation at the end of Darkness Falls, the second Immortal Beloved novel, Nastasya Crowe is, as she would put it, so over the drama. She fights back against the dark immortals with her own brand of kick-butt magick...but can she fight against true love? In the satisfying finale to the Immortal Beloved trilogy, ex-party-girl immortal Nastasya ends a 450-year-old feud and learns what "eternally yours" really means.

Laced with historical flashbacks and laugh-out-loud dialogue, the Immortal Beloved trilogy is a fascinating and unique take on what it would mean to live forever

Shannon's Thoughts:
Eternally Yours is the final book in the Immortal Beloved series.  Overall, this is a very satisfying conclusion.  In fact, the entire series is very strong from first to last book.  Eternally Yours starts off soon after the events of the second, Darkness Falls.  Nastasya is reeling from the outcome of those events and trying to put her life back together.  But she doesn't get too far when strange things start happening at River's End and River's brothers come into town with accusations that Nastasya is working with dark immortals.  But it looks like those immortals might actually be coming for Nastasya and River's End starts to prepare for an attack.

Like the first two books, it is told from Nastasya's perspective and she is a great narrator.  She is sassy and funny.  Her humor really drives the book.  While she is trying to learn how to be "good", she is also dealing with her feelings for Reyn, an immortal viking also living at River's End.  Their relationship is the very definition of "It's Complicated".  Love it.

Considering all the lead up to the big event, I found the action a little lacking.  The majority of it happens at the very end.  The revelations of who the dark immortals were was a little strange because it seemed to come out of the blue.  But really, this series has always been about Nastasya's journey as she comes to terms with her past and accepts her place in the world.

Books in the series in the order they should be read:
1. Immortal Beloved
2. Darkness Falls
3. Eternally Yours
